I have significant experience treating adults and adolescents with eating disorders and am specifically specializing in treating adolescents with eating disorders using Family-Based Treatment. Eating disorder recovery is the goal in working with me. What is eating disorder recovery though? It isn't the absence of disordered thoughts and feelings but instead the absence of disordered behaviors. That begs the question: in recovery, what is present in the absence of disordered behaviors? Normalized eating, which entails eating enough, variety, and regularly, as well as being flexible and eating with enjoyment instead of fear.

You just want to feel happy, to wake up and to actually feel excited about your day. You can't remember the last time you didn't feel stressed or rushed. You miss the old you, the you that used to smile, play with the kids, have fun with your partner. Imagine what it would feel like to slow down just a bit, to feel less stressed. Imagine what it would be like to feel calm, happy, and confident as you went through you day. Imagine what could change if you were able to start feeling good again.

It's possible to access your inner wisdom and feel a sense of safety and belonging in this world; to hear your soul's calling and respond; to live into your deepest truths. When change is desired, the psychotherapy process transforms overwhelming fears, frustrations, and responsibilities into guides that keep one true to one's authentic path. I am here to journey with you; to help you create a place for your most sacred aspects of self so that you can feel more connected to yourself, to others, and to the world.

My goal in therapy is to put myself out of a job. To do this, I help you figure out what the roots of your problems and needs are, I help you to set clear goals, I use therapies that have been proven to be effective, and then I encourage you to continue the work between sessions using concrete plans you generate during our time together. I have over 17 years of experience in mindfulness meditation, which generates a variety of tools I can use to help you navigate your mind and circumstances. At the same time, my meditation practice helps me to be a creative, light-hearted, and compassionate presence during our sessions.

I promise there’s a reason you’re feeling the way you do, and the reason is more understandable than you think. When we’ve experienced something hard, no matter how much we try to move on, sometimes we can’t shake the leftover bad feelings. These last few years have been tough on everyone - if you're struggling right now, you're not alone. Maybe you can’t sleep, can’t stay motivated, or you’re unsatisfied with relationships at home or work. I work with a lot of LGBTQ youth and adults, couples who can't stop fighting, and burnt out parents. I hold therapy in a social justice lens and care about your unique perspectives.

Thank you for viewing my profile. I have 3 graduate degrees, all in mental/behavioral health, licenses in Co. and CA., and I am comfortable in working with a vast array of issues. I have worked in several mental health settings throughout my career, including: community mental health, hospitals, dialysis centers and private practice. My theory basis is psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral, but I always work with the patient in their comfort level and style. I strongly feel that therapeutic success comes from my ability to help others help themselves. I look forward to potentially working with you. Dr. Jacks

Transformative potential lies at the heart of all wounding. Trauma, relationship issues and transitions compel us to re-examine our lives, values and patterns that no longer serve. Together we can find and unwind the stuck energies of depression, anxiety and other difficulties to make way for an enlivened and authentic life.

Therapy is a chance to explore your feelings and thoughts, to gain a better understanding of yourself, and to make positive changes that will allow you to experience life more fully. I will provide a safe environment for your exploration, and draw on my knowledge of theory and technique to help you access untapped or forgotten resources. I believe that through a respectful therapeutic relationship you will be able to explore beliefs that limit your life, and ultimately you will be able to choose, with awareness, how you want to be in the world.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in California are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in California then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in California, or Child Psychologists in California.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like California psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in California specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
